Stolen Photos?

Tue Feb 27, 2007 6:22 am

Hello all good photo-fellows at Airliners.net

I made a search on the internet for Lockheed TriStar N7035T, and found an interesting german website here: http://www.eucomairlines.de/

Among other things, a good website on Tristar Production list. But the photos looked so familiar...

The website tells: "Für die betreffenden Informationen übernehme ich keine Gewähr hinsichtlich ihrer Aktualität, Korrektheit, Vollständigkeit sowie Qualität. Soweit nicht besonders gekennzeichnet stammen die Texte, Fotos sowie Grafiken von mir und unterliegen damit meinem Copyright."

I´m sorry to say I don´t beleive it, since this is what i found concerning c/n 193B-1231

all represent some important and missing information here. And I´m afraid I must "recommend" all TriStar photographers to have a look for their photos, it could be a few more....

He must have downoaded them, cropped them and rezized them. I can´t recall ever to have been asked for my permission, so I´m sorry to say, this interesting website is illustatrated with stolen photos from this database.

Another good reason to start using the watermarks offered on the upload site now.

Kind regards Ole Johan Beck

It's a private homepage without any commercial background

Not nice if he used without permission but not a very big deal in my eyes (no pics from me used)

Therefore I added the term "in my eyes". It's always better if you are asked kindly or the pics are linked instead of stealing. But that should be decided by every Photographer personally.

It´s not a "big deal", but the normal © protection of all serious websites. Now the owner of the website has altered the Disclaimer quoted in my first posting here, and I´m sure it will develop to be a brilliant website of the Lockheed L-1011 TriStar.

http://www.l1011.de:80/ Another link to the same website
No doubt, the vast majority of photos are legal, but there still is some work to be done.

It is so easy, really, to use the "Contact photographer" link at all photos in this database. And it is not difficult to get permission to show interesting photos the legal way. So why bother to download, crop, resize, save and upload illegally?

Every time a photo is opened, the following text is showed just over the photo:
"This photo is copyright protected and may not be used in any way without proper permission." And then the "usephotos" link.
